Can't Get Away
Found over at textually.org is this story from the Sunday Herald from some guy whining on and on about how mobile phones have made it so that you just can’t be out of contact any more. He comes up with all the old excuses people used, and how they’re no longer viable with mobile phones. Then, originally mobile phones could be avoided by saying you were out of service range or the battery had gone dead – but with improved technology, those are harder to get away with as well. I have a suggestion: turn the damn phone off, if it bothers you so much.
